The Educational Day Care Consultation Program.
Green, Melinda; Valenstein, Thelma
A research and training program for family day care mothers at the University of Michigan involves both group meetings and individual home consultations by educational consultants, trained community para-professionals. The program is directed toward low income and working class licensed day care mothers and is conducted by the School of Education. Objectives include providing on-site training to licensed day care mothers, developing their sense of competence as professionals, creating a career ladder culminating in a college degree and teacher certification for low income men and women in the field of child care, improving communication between day care workers and natural parents, developing a model program suitable for any community, and developing more professional expertise in the field of child care by using education and social work students who have field placements in the program. In addition to providing details on the research instruments and staff training procedures, the paper also includes appendices on personnel, sample materials, and the research instruments.
